Tough Scheduled Continues Today at No. 17 Fort Lewis
DURANGO, Colo. - The tough schedule for the University of Colorado Colorado Springs men's soccer continues Sunday when the Mountain Lions (1-4 / 0-2 RMAC) faces its second straight nationally-ranked opponent against No. 17 Fort Lewis (5-1-1 / 2-0-1 RMAC) at 3:30 p.m. at Dirks Field.
Today's game against the defending national champion is the fifth team for the Mountain Lions ranked in a regional poll. It's also the second with a nationally-ranked team after Friday's game with seventh-ranked Regis ended in a 1-0 decision.
UCCS held the Skyhawks to a single goal in both games last year, for two of the seven of games when Fort Lewis was held to one or no goals. The Mountain Lion defense also held the fourth-best scoring offense in Division II to a single goal on Friday with Regis.
